IP 2.07 Workers Compensation

Northeastern seeks to provide safe working conditions for all employees.   Any work-related injury may entitle an employee to benefits provided by law. Any accident or injury which occurs in the scope of employment, no matter how minor, should be reported to the Human Resources Office, Walker Hall, Room 102, immediately.  The designated medical provider for Northeastern is the Family Care Clinic, Haxtun Family Medicine Center, Akron Clinic, and Brush Family Medicine. In the case of a life or limb threatening injury, employees should follow emergency procedures by calling 911 or going to the nearest emergency care facility.  All follow-up care must be provided by the designated providers.   In the case of less serious injuries, report to or call the HR Office to complete a report and obtain assistance in scheduling an appointment for care.
